Meet author Lori Wildenberg

Lori Wildenberg, author

Lori Wildenberg is a mom who loves the Lord and is "passionate about being a parent (4 kids now 5 with a daughter-in-love). "Parenting is tough. We all need support and encouragement with this important task."

 "I thrive on encouraging parents through writing and speaking to be the parent their children need them to be. This passion has actually grown a ministry co-founded by Becky Danielson and me to a team of 24 moms and dads, from all places of parenting. 1 Corinthians 13 Parenting seeks to be a parent’s one stop shop for all his or her parenting needs. Our 24 experts relate well to parents and all have a heart to support moms and dads in this important journey."

Parents wanted the material she was developing and teaching in published form, so from speaking and teaching the writing "came through the back door." Her two most recently co-authored books are: Raising Little Kids with Big Love(for parents of toddlers to age 8) and Raising Big Kids with Supernatural Love (for those with tween to young adult children). 

Tell us about the book(s)
Typically 1 Corinthians 13 (The LOVE Chapter) is read at weddings. The principles in 1 Corinthians 13 (Love is patient, love is kid) are applied to parenting and growing the 15 attributes of love found in 1 Corinthians 13 in parents and in their children, The book(s) is very practical, easy to apply, and based on God’s word. 

My favorite chapter "Choose Goodness." It deals with how to grow a child’s conscience (Little Kids book) and what to do about common temptations our kids face today (Big Kids book)." There is also a study for each book.
